Default Last two questions... - 02-26-2009, 02:33 PM


I'm ready to make the plug, but a couple questions:

1) Is there any secret to searching Dell outlet? I'm looking for a Mini 9 with 1.3 camera and bluetooth and it seems the only what to find out id a specific unit has those features to to open each one and look at it. Am I correct?

2) Hulu - I've searched around here and I've seeing mixed comments about Hulu not really working well. Is there any final consensus on the issue. if I can't run Hulu then I'm likely to wait until the hardware/software (flash) is improved.

Thanks in advance for any help/advice,

1) If there is a way to check for the camera and bluetooth without looking at each of them individually, I haven't figured it out yet. If someone else has figured out a better way, I hope they'll share! It would make future Outlet purchases a lot easier.

2) I've watched Hulu on both of my Minis with no problems whatsoever. YouTube,, and other video sites work well for me too.

Good luck with your purchase!

I am just reinforcing Lauriem04's statements more or less. I also wanted a 1.3m camera and bluetooth (though I ended up not getting it). I had to open each one up one by one. What I did though was search by SSD size so I could get the best bang for my buck. I ended up with a 32G SSD, 1G ram, and 1.3m cam for $319.00 but I have looked there since and haven't been fortunate enough to see anything close. Just keep your eye open!

I have also watched countless websites to include Hulu and YouTube without any problem on my mini. So buy away!! I love mine!
